Dave’s folks celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. We are so grateful for their legacy of love as well for the amazing adventure they took us on in celebration.

the tour guide really appreciated my attentiveness

wpid2822-DSC6259 Days in My Life Travel

We saw ALOT of totem poles. They all look the same to me. No offense.

wpid2818-DSC6240 Days in My Life Travel

I had high tea with my grandma at the Empress Hotel when I was a little girl. And now…

Royal B.C. Museum

wpid2836-DSC6447 Days in My Life Travel

Butchart Gardens’ Sunken Garden. It was once a quarry. This is what happened when the owner’s wife meddled in his business.

wpid2840-DSC6542 Days in My Life Travel

The girls’ first Shirley Temples just after boarding our 7-day Disney cruise to Alaska up the Inside Passage.

wpid2842-DSC6545 Days in My Life Travel

A dream is a wish your heart makes.

wpid2844-DSC6642 Days in My Life Travel

Character appearances were a daily occurrence. When you have to wait in line to talk to them it’s one thing. When Donald Duck gets on the elevator with you, it gets personal.

wpid2846-DSC6652 Days in My Life Travel

Not your typical day-at-sea aboard a cruise. Loved that we were in view of land the entire cruise.

wpid2848-DSC6676 Days in My Life Travel

Here’s looking at you mom!

wpid2850-DSC6687 Days in My Life Travel

Her first love.

wpid2930-DSC6663 Days in My Life Travel

Beauty in the eye of the beholder.

wpid2928-DSC6648 Days in My Life Travel

The color of glacial water.

wpid2852-DSC6713 Days in My Life Travel

Dave making good use of his birthday gift.

wpid2860-DSC6818 Days in My Life Travel

The Sawyer Glacier

wpid2858-DSC6781 Days in My Life Travel

Mickey and Minnie greeted us in the Tracy Arm fjord.

wpid2856-DSC6761 Days in My Life Travel

My people.

wpid2862-DSC6846 Days in My Life Travel

When scenic beauty ceases to amaze, you bust out the princess dolls.

wpid2854-DSC6745 Days in My Life Travel

My beauties never cease to amaze me.

wpid2938-DSC6832 Days in My Life Travel

There was a Frozen party aboard the Disney cruise that night. Fitting.

wpid2934-DSC6803 Days in My Life Travel

She took 200+ photos with that camera then left it on the plane home. Not sure who was more sad.

wpid2936-DSC6827 Days in My Life Travel

I love her expression. She’s looking at a Dall Sheep up on the mountain!

wpid2866-DSC6904 Days in My Life Travel

A little play with my LensBaby Sweet 35.

wpid2940-DSC6906 Days in My Life Travel

I love this art lens but it’s an acquired taste for many.

wpid2884-DSC7088 Days in My Life Travel

Our first port of call: Skagway – base camp for the Klondike Gold Rush

wpid2886-DSC7107 Days in My Life Travel

This ship runs on wishes, dreams and a little bit of pixie dust.

wpid2874-DSC7018 Days in My Life Travel

The Carcross Desert in the middle of the mountains. I could have stayed here all day. It was surreal.

wpid2944-DSC7024 Days in My Life Travel

wpid2876-DSC7035 Days in My Life Travel

wpid2878-DSC7046 Days in My Life Travel

There are some scenes that a camera just doesn’t do justice.

wpid2880-DSC7056 Days in My Life Travel

There’s gold in them thar’ hills!!!

wpid2882-DSC7073 Days in My Life Travel

Dave was convinced he had panned a fleck of gold. Brenna dropped it right after this shot. Surely you see it.

wpid2896-DSC7185 Days in My Life Travel

Finger play with grandma on a bus in Juneau. I love that little hand.

wpid2971-DSC7109 Days in My Life Travel

The Meddenhall Glacier in Juneau. It extended out to the waterfall on the right in the 1970s! Yikes! Dave and his dad hiked five hours to touch it. The ladies took a bus and were very happy with this view.

wpid2974-DSC7174 Days in My Life Travel

wpid2892-DSC7136 Days in My Life Travel

Sadly, the only bear sighting we had. We saw a bald eagle, dolphins, seals, and lots of whales though!

wpid2898-DSC7211 Days in My Life Travel

A view of our ship docked in Juneau from the tram we took up Mt. Roberts.

wpid2900-DSC7227 Days in My Life Travel

This was taken at 9pm at night. The sun sets REALLY late in Alaska. Try convincing your kids they should really go to bed aboard a Disney cruise.

wpid2902-DSC7258 Days in My Life Travel

I forget the name of this place.

wpid2904-DSC7262 Days in My Life Travel

Creek Street – once the red light district of Ketchikan, now shops.

wpid2906-DSC7270 Days in My Life Travel

Walking through a rain forest in Ketchikan.

wpid2914-DSC7326 Days in My Life Travel

The day we disembarked back in Vancouver.

wpid2916-DSC7336 Days in My Life Travel

The cliff walk at Capilano Suspension Bridge park.

wpid2918-DSC7341 Days in My Life Travel

wpid2922-DSC7360 Days in My Life Travel

The 450 foot long Capilano suspension bridge dangling 230 feet above a river.

wpid2920-DSC7356 Days in My Life Travel

Well, if you say so.
